Enacting Distributed Business Workflows

Li Guo

This talk is in preparation for a talk that I am going to give at Multi-agent system TEchnologieS  (MATES) in September.  I will describe the development of a distributed multi-agent workflow enactment mechanism using the BPEL4WS specification.  It demonstrates that a multi-agent protocol, specified in the Lightweight Coordination Calculus (LCC), can be used to interpret a BPEL4WS specification to enable distributed business work-flow using web services composition on the multi-agent platform.
